So what do you think is the best Anti-Cortisol / Anti-Catabolic?? I want something that is NON PH and NON AAS... So far the best thing I've found is AX Lean-FX. Is that a good choice and/or what is your opinion on possible better alternatives??
Okay, thanks for the advice!
A cheap phosphatidyl serine supplement would probably do the trick.
Cissus plus VatAttack ftw

I havent tried the others but I love good ole Lean Xtreme, and now it comes as an extended release formula.
Remember why you started.
man im on my last week of LX and havent noticed anything different. I have been bulking though. maybe it kept additional fat for gaining. I reallly would like a midsection fat burner. Cytolean v2 is out
I've used LX with decent results. When that runs out I'm giving Lean-FX a shot, it looks good.
Look into running a transdermal 7keto. I got really good results of that.
Not everyone has cortisol issues. At the end of a cycle or if your life is so stressful you can barely breath, then a cort blocker can help. If you are normal and healthy, sometimes it appears useless because you dont have an issue with it in the first place.Originally Posted by ericisfly;202, 4743
You should give Blue GENE a try.
It has both anti catabolic and anti cortisol properties
And judging by your avatar you really need a haircut

AFAIK there isn't a single study that shows cortisol helps with weight loss. At least not any reputable study.
Anti-cort is recommended in PCT because the theory is cortisol could be unnaturally elevated after a steroid cycle and it can be catabolic. So you want the cort blocker to help preserve your gains. But no amount of stress is going to raise your cortisol high enough to make you gain weight or attack your muscles. So no point in in using cort blockers.
The supplement companies will have you believe otherwise but the science doesn't support their claims. I wouldn't waste money an an anti-cort unless you're in PCT and even then the necessity is dubious.
Some people have a condition which causes them to have abnormally high cortisol levels which can have negative effects. That's true.
But raised cortisol from training, diet and stress does not wreak havoc on the body because it does not raise cortisol high enough to have any impact. Again, if you have a study that shows cortisol "wreaking havoc" on the body of healthy people pass it along.
For those who are curious, if you do a Google search you'll find two kinds of results -- those from supplement companies and propaganda sites, and legitimate sites that debunk the former.
Will a cortisol blocker help a healthy person (even if stressed, dieting, weight-trained, etc.) lose weight successfully? Absolutely NOT. And there is plenty of science to support this.

Here's the thing, there's plenty of info out there that shows cortisol blockers do squat with respect to weight loss for healthy people. I've researched it myself and am confident in that. The information's not hard to find but I have no motivation to do the research again because I'm not selling anything and have nothing to gain. My recommendation is that you do the research before you spend the money.
BTW - Research does NOT mean reading product FAQs or supplement company websites.
Just to prove I'm not blowing smoke here's a very specific article from the Mayo Clinic - http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/cor...ockers/AN01275
And here's another - http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Truth-...ers!&id=940574
There are countless others.
Chew on that.
there is evidence all over the place. I also agree that research is not reading a companies FAQ and people should research.
I'll take a look at the links you posted. I haven't yet.
I like Lean Xtreme.
but would like to try Lean-FX
I only use them post cycle...other wise I don't see much effects...
